To obtain the Freeview HD logo for your product, please follow the suggested steps below:
Step 1 – Check your product meets the DTG’s requirements for DVB-T2 receivers / recorders. The DTG’s requirements for compliant receivers are outlined in the D-Book, the specification for digital terrestrial television in the UK.
Please read the DTG Membership Application form, including the IPR documents

Please be advised that membership applications take seven days to be approved by DTG Council.
No member has the right to share the D-Book lawfully with other organisations. You should also be aware that the cost of unauthorised use of the D-Book is £50,000, which is also the cost of a single edition to non-members. If you are developing a Freeview HD device, you need lawful access to the D-Book to avoid problems in the future. You should also be aware that we inform UK retailers of the identities of all the organisations with access to the D-Book so that they can ensure that their suppliers are fully entitled to use the specification and they can therefore range their products.
